Click here for more details of playing Pathfinder Society at FG-Con.

The Pathfinder Society sends you to Kaer Maga, the City of Strangers, where you are ordered to find a local Pathfinder associate who sent a strange letter to Venture-Captain Drandle Dreng in Absalom. When the local associate turns up dead and you find evidence linking his death to a mysterious organization called The Shadow Lodge, it’s up to you to track them down and solve the man’s murder.

The Shadow Gambit is the first scenario in the two-part The City of Strangers campaign arc. Pathfinder Society Scenario #52: The City of Strangers—Part II: The Twofold Demise is the sequel.

    I might bring Inquisitor Stick to this one… he’s level 4

    I would love to play in this, played along side lachancery as a player, would like to see how he is as a GM. I am new to PFS so my character would have to be lvl 1 unless I rolled a pregen.

    I could bring a magus 1, paladin 2, or witch 5

    I think I have a character in each subtier – what is the intended run?

    I’m new to PFS and this will be my first time using FG, but I’m excited to try it out. I am working on having a lvl1 char ready to go, but can run a pregen if everyone wants to play a higher tier.

    Hope I get the chance to play with you guys.

    I was kinda hoping for a higher tier game since most of the others I am playing in this weekend are all 1-2 – but if the majority are looking for introductory sessions, I can come with something 1-2.

      I’m definitely planning on bringing my level 4 Inquisitor to this one.

      I can bring the lvl 4 pregen for druid if everyone wants to play higher tier. The lvl1 character I am making for other sessions will be a druid so I would like the chronicle sheet to be applicable down the road. Just out of curiousity how does it work for me to bring a pregen character to FG. Do I just create a new char with the pregen stats? Also, how does it work with animal companions? do they need their own character sheet or is there a way to track them with FG. Sorry for all the questions, but I is a newbie to this :(.

        There is a specific character that you play, in the case of the Druid Kiri has a leopard companion. I’ll see if I can find you a link to her sheet…
        Try this: http://paizo.com/products/btpy9a64
        Note: Many of the GMs already have these characters prepped for FG so it is likely that all you need to do is let them know (in advance) which one you want to play and they should have the PREGEN ready to go for the game.

          Thanks for the reply Blackfoot. I downloaded all the pregen character sheets now. I just wanted to make sure I don’t make more work for the GM. Also, out of curiosity, I’m signed up for part II of this story as well. Will that be played at Tier 1-2? or Tier 3-4 again?

            I’m hoping part 2 will be at the same tier so as to allow the same character to complete both chapters in the series.

    I will have both a lvl 1 ready and a pregen ready depending on what tier we end up playing at.

    After emailing with the GM, I will be playing a lvl4 rogue pregen, since this will be a more urban scenario. Just wanted to let everyone else know.

    I am bringing Level/4 Axxis Druid2/Wizard2 and her Velociraptor Animal Companion Blood.
